16 Questions

I saw this on Danielle's blog (and Emily's) and thought it would be fun to fill out the questionnaire! 

1. Are you named after anyone? Nope. I was almost named Jessica after my great grandmother, but instead my mom chose Jennifer.

2. When was the last time you cried? Watching the video of  Zion Harvey, and his amazing attitude, perseverance and outlook through some really tough stuff. He's SO incredibly sweet, too!
3. Do you have kids? Nope, not yet! We're working on it!

4. Will you ever bungee-jump? Never. I'm too afraid of snapping my spine in half. My husband did it--I'll live vicariously through him

5. What's your favorite cereal? I'm with Danielle in that I don't like milk in my cereal (the mushy-ness is gross!). So when I DO eat cereal it's always dry, with a glass of milk on the side. Recently I've been into the Dark Chocolate Cheerios :)

6. What's the first thing you notice about people? whether they seem approachable/smile.

7. What is your eye color? Blue, blue/green

8. Scary movie or happy endings? Happy endings, hands down. I don't like scary, gross me out kind of movies. No thank you. Give me a happy, sappy ending any day!

9. Favorite scents? I love apple cinnamon scents, and rose scented things 

10. Summer or winter? Summer for sure. I hate how short the days are in Winter. Leaving for work in the dark and getting home when it's dark is just depressing.

11. What's the furthest you've ever been from home? Europe. Probably Greece this summer!

 
12. Do you have any special talents? I can raise both of my eyebrows independently of one another (one at a time). This talent has obviously gotten me to where I am today :p

13. Where were your born? Washington, D.C.

14. What are your hobbies? Reading and more reading, watching reality tv, writing, going on walks/hikes with my husband, online shopping :)

15. Do you have any pets? Little Cooper!!

16. Favorite movie? I have a bunch but my top ones are The Cutting Edge (from younger), Serendipity, and The Holiday (see what I mean about happy endings??)

  7. I do the exactly same thing with cereal! I cannot mix milk in with it but I always have a full glass of milk next to my bowl to enjoy with it. My husband still doesn't understand it but whatever. Glad I'm not the only one :)

  9. What a fun little questionnaire! I may have to borrow it! ;) I LOVED that story about the little boy who got two new hands. Omg, tears! So sweet. How can someone with those circumstances be SO optimistic?! I love him!

  12. The Zion story was amazing... almost as amazing as Coop and the snapchat filters! So cute!!!

  13. That Zion story is incredible!

    I am already missing the longer summer days - the sun is now setting around 8 and rising around 7... just a month ago it wasn't setting until closer to 10 and rising around 6!

  14. Haha I love the Cooper snapchats! And summer all the way - I'm already getting depressed just thinking about the fact that winter will be here before we know it, blah!!

  15. I had no clue that they had Dark Choco Cheerios, but I'm going to get some next time I'm at Publix. I'm a dark chocoholic. Dark Choco M&Ms are the best!

  16. Loved reading this and learning more about you. Love Cooper in the Harry Potter glasses!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dark chocolate cheerios are a thing? Oh my lord. I need them! I loved learning more about you. And I love Cooper pics!!!

  18. Haha, I find it odd that characters in books will often "raise an eyebrow" in response to something, but I almost never meet someone who can actually raise just one eyebrow at a time. I can't.

  19. Zion Harvey is just the sweetest and so inspirational! I use the least amount of milk on my cereal or eat it dry too. The Cutting Edge is one of my faves!!

  20. Awe Cooper is adorable. Gosh, Greece is so just so beautiful. I can't wait to visit. I've heard things like it being a rough time to travel to Greece since their economy hasn't been doing too well. Did any of that affect y'alls trip? Milk on the side with cereal, oh no! I don't know how you do it lol. I love cereal. I eat special K's pecan and cinnamon cereal with almond milk every morning. So tasty!

  21. It's not often I find many people who agree that milk with cereal is awful. Except, I don't drink milk at all. Cooper is just too cute.

  23. This was so cute! I've never known anyone else besides my hubs that doesn't like milk in their cereal - I think it's so weird, but I guess that's a thing! Lol!
